Yes, another break from electronica genres for the pretzel (I'm on a roll). This is Yuzo's all-powerful Fillmore theme from Actraiser, and let me start off by saying that if you want a (friggin' fantastic) techno mix of this, check out McVaffe's Freestyle submission - it won't disappoint. Given that McV already covered this territory and that it was one of his very best ReMixes, I felt no need to go down that road, and something about the song just screamed funk to me. Probably the jiggy slap bass from the original, which I decided to keep (if dramatically change the notes of). Also, the piece has a lot of brilliant transition segments, which I really emphasized here, almost more than what I would consider to be the main verse / chorus. Like my Swankyvegas mix, this is no loops, no quantization, recorded at-tempo, and all done on a Yamaha Motif. Main ingredients are as follows: acoustic drums, slap bass, electric piano (70's style Rhodes), wah-guitar, distorted electric jazz guitar, flute, and three organs - two B3's with different stops and a Farfisa. It's a pretty short mix, not very indulgent, and though I did do some mastering in T-racks you might have to fiddle with EQ a bit depending on your bass-treble preferences. I'm happy with it mostly because I always wanted to hear the verse melody with some alterations - specifically, going up in the fourth measure and doing some slides, which jazz guitar works well with, and I also always thought the downward run I use as an intro would be great with some syncopated funk drums. Since I always wanted to do this, I'm now content and can die (mostly) happy, but hopefully you'll enjoy it too.
